beyond 40 feet in height automatically requires conditional use authorization. so it's sort of a layered effect where you have both an ultimate envelope of 65 feet, but again any development between 40 feet and 65 requires your conditional use authorization. commissioner miguel: thank you, i just wanted that clarified so that everybody understood where the two numbers came from. i might, and i say that very definitely, might be more satisfied if you slipped in the fourth floor, and i say this not to knock off the sixth floor because some of the setbacks on the upper two floors could still work with the whole thing coming down. so slipping out something like the third or fourth floor and bringing it down so that the setbacks on the then remaining upper floors were there would start to satisfy me a little more. i still am in a situation as long as we're over the 40 foot of necessary and desirable, i am of the opinion, strictly personal, that 4,000 square foot penthouse is neither necessary or desirable and that if you did bring down a floor, that top level could be divided into sev

california is in effect a war on crumbs instead of the often used phrase on drugs. how do you respond to his remarks? >> well, i think the first thing that we have to recognize is that the majority of people who are caught up in the criminal justice system and who are prosecuted for this type of offense for possession offenses and to some degree possession for sale offenses, the vast majority are indigent people and the vast majority of those indigent people are people of color. so what you have are two systems in place. you have a system where privileged white middle class people basically use drugs, college campuses, frat parties, not clubs, they use drug with impunity, they don't have to worry about being caught. then you have a system that comes down like a ton of bricks on indigent poor people and that's one of the reasons why i think this type of reform is a positive first step because if you aren't going to make drug possession illegal, at least make it a misdemeanor and not a felony. at least don't stigmatize and label an entire population of people as felons and prevent them
